Have the Mindset of a Top Achiever – Do the Minimum Necessary
What does it mean to work smarter? Does it mean to do each task better than the other person, or could it mean to stop doing it and work less? If you guessed the latter, you would be right. We’ve bought into the notion that hard work is necessary to achieve big results. Top performers aren’t lazy. They are focused on results. What can be eliminated from the work routine that steals time and doesn’t contribute value-added time to the result? It is time to challenge the traditional way of thinking and to consider new conventions of success. What are you currently doing that you should stop doing, that will allow you to focus better and achieve better results? Why do kids have homework in school? Why do hotels check in their guests? Good questions! Start focusing on value and result, and you will be focusing time and attention on the few critical processes that will lead to success.
